A groundbreaking ceremony will be held on Friday, April 21 at 10 a.m. to officially begin construction on the new Friendship Road sewer line.
“I’m excited to break ground on a project that is an integral piece of Hall County’s strategic plan, comprehensive plan, and sewer master plan,” said Hall County District 1 Commissioner Kathy Cooper. “This sewer line will be able to serve thousands of residents along Friendship Road, resulting in better services for existing residents and continued growth in the area.”
The additional 5.2 miles of sewer incorporates 3.2 miles of gravity lines and 2.0 miles of force main lines and will travel along the Friendship Road corridor, serving the Mitchell Creek Basin area along the Hall/Gwinnett border.
“This is an exciting moment for the Public Works Department,” said Hall County Public Works Director Bill Nash. “We have to be intentional in planning these types of development projects, and we’re proud of the time, effort and planning that’s gotten it to this point. But we’re even more excited for what’s to come and the service it will provide the citizens of South Hall.”
The ceremony is open to the public and will be held on the parcel of land located at 4435 Ridge Road, Buford – on the corner of Friendship Road and Ridge Road. Guests will be able to access the land by a short driveway located on Ridge Road. Parking for the event will be directed.
Construction for the sewer line is expected to be complete in early fall 2024, weather permitting. Funding for the $13.9 million project comes from SPLOST VIII and ARPA.
